Hello, I’m Itonya, AKA “Real Estate by Itonya”. After earning an Associate Degree in Property Management from Merritt College and a BA in Youth Ministry from Patten University, I have spent 20+ years guiding and encouraging property owners, property managers, and tenants alike in one of the highest rental markets in the country, the San Francisco Bay Area. Quickly filling sought-after properties with qualified tenants, I became an expert in the field of rental property leasing.
That was my start selling real estate. Now I help people buy their dream home or investment property with the same excellent service I provide to rental clients. Working with me, you become an informed buyer or seller. I offer a free virtual Homebuyer Seminar every 3rd Thursday of the month where special guests talk about the homebuying process. Join us and ask questions!
As a CCRM (California-Certified Residential Manager) and a member of several real estate trade associations and community organizations, I bring a broad range of experience to my real estate practice. I have also owned and managed rental properties. In my former role as the Regional Assistant for BRE Properties, Inc., I became even more familiar with Bay Area neighborhoods. Clients know they can count on my market expertise. There’s no stress; I take them by the hand as a guide and collaborator for the entire buying or selling process.
The nonprofit I founded is called “Our Youth Matter”. We demonstrate love to youth by holding five events a year to help lessen the financial burdens of families in Oakland. Raised in Oakland and the church, I feel strongly about giving back. When not working or volunteering, I love listening to music, eating good food, hanging out with longtime friends, and traveling. I also enjoy giving back with family; after dinner we love watching movies and playing games together. I have one adult son and a recent empty nester.
I am excited to match you with your next home, sell your existing home, or assist you with real estate investments. Call me for more information, or follow me on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, or YouTube @RealEstateByItonya.
